  1. Hi, I saw something somewhere (can’t remember!) about commenting on upcoming Bayswater initiatives around accessibility. The lack of footpaths in bayswater creates a barrier to kids, the disabled and those without cars getting around. I’m sick of seeing mums pushing prams on the road. Is there any action I can take to get some answers about this?

    1. Hi Bronwyn, Thanks for your enquiry. There is currently community consultation being sought for an ongoing ‘Traffic Management Study’ and this includes pedestrian traffic. You can find the details here- http://www.bayswater.wa.gov.au/default.aspx?et=2&ei=196&subSite=1&mode=1&id=63 . The study is broken into different precincts and so you can either comment on a specific precinct or (I presume) specify multiple ones.
      In addition, as you mention the disabled, it would be appropriate to also comment on the current community consultation for the current ‘Disability Access and Inclusion Plan’. Details of which you can find here – http://www.bayswater.wa.gov.au/default.aspx?et=2&ei=196&subSite=1&mode=1&id=65
      I can assure you that it does make a difference when the community make comments during the various consultations that the City does, so I it would be great if you did.

  2. Hi Mr Cornish,

    Thank you for the great job you are doing as a Councillor for the City of Bayswater.

    I was encouraged to read that you too have concerns about the amount of multiple dwellings going up in the Morley area. Our roads are the old grid system and we don’t seem to have enough area for parking but my main concern is the lack of yard for children to play in. This impacts in so many ways such as kids spending time in the shed with dad or gramps or mum learning how to build and fix things, which impacts on their problem solving skills, their fine motor control and even their literacy skills in that they do not spend time ‘doing’ and talking with an adult and building up vocabulary that helps their literacy. Also, kids need an area to play safely and to be able to build, create and explore spontaneously. These days children have to have ‘playdates’ organised by an adult and this stops a lot of spontaneous, imaginative play.

    Oops, I did not mean to go on so much and of course there is an argument for both big and small living arears, I just wanted to say that I’m glad I voted for you in the last election and you have my vote in the 2015 election in October.

    Thank you for the great work you are doing,

    Kind regards
    Helen

    1. Thanks Helen for your kind words; much appreciated. There is no question in my mind that the current rules for multiple dwellings will forever alter the amenity of our community in a negative way. There is no question that they serve a purpose and are good in certain areas, but unfortunately the current rules don’t limit them to certain areas. Not sure if you have read my blog article on the problems with multiple dwellings, if not you may find it of interest.

  3. Good morning Chris,
    I’ve just finished reading your proposal to use the Burnley method of tree valuation to help protect existing trees. Something I whole heartedly agree with.
    You state that this method has been used for “compensation, insurance and litigation purposes”
    Are you able to be more specific, or put me in touch with someone who can expand out on this.
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Chris,
      Thanks for your message. The part you refer to was added by the journalist as an explanation of the origins of the Burnley method. She got it from a link in my “solution for preventing the destruction of trees” blog article (http://chriscornish.info/a-solution-for-preventing-the-destruction-of-trees/). Just click on “Burnley Method”.
      What got me onto this whole concept was a discussion with a civil engineer who told me most engineering contracts he’s been involved with place a dollar value on trees which his company would have to pay if they were damaged or killed.
